Advanced practitioners (APs) are an integral part of the cancer care team. Therefore, it is imperative they are knowledgeable of risk factors associated with venous thromboembolism (VTE) in the oncology setting, including signs or symptoms and management. Early intervention is crucial. APs must also be able to differentiate between anticoagulation drugs and select the appropriate treatment for their patient with VTE. This educational program will provide the AP with an overview of VTE risks in cancer patients, indications and contraindications for prophylaxis or treatment, antidotes/reversal agents, and patient monitoring.
